DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE manager John Still has admitted there is no further news on the possibility of re-signing Portsmouth winger Matt Ritchie.

The 20-year-old, who has returned to Fratton Park after spending three months at Notts County this season proved a massive hit at Victoria Road in his loan period last campaign, scoring 12 goals from the left flank.

Although Still is monitoring proceedings, he doesn't expect anything to be concluded in the transfer window.
